As a resident of Pembroke for 37 years, I am proud to share with others the good news that my town is celebrating its 300th anniversary this year. Like so many towns in the South Shore, Pembroke has grown from a small community to a well-populated and bustling area with much to offer its residents.
The various committees working on the anniversary celebration have planned numerous events that should provide fun for all attendees.
Some of the events planned are as follows:
Pembroke’s largest water balloon fight
||Public Safety Night|
|July 22||Treasure Hunt followed by a cook out at the Herring Run|
|July 29||North River Cruise & Trolley Tour|
|August 10& 12||Pembroke Arts Festival|
|August 18 & 19||Aviation Week end|
|September 23||Road Race and Parade|
|October 20 & 21||Civil War Enactment followed by fireworks|
|November 3||Pembroke High School Concert|
|December 15||Closing Events|
There are raffle tickets selling for $5 each for the Pembroke 300th Anniversary Quilt which is on display at the Pembroke Center Library.
Suggestions are being requested for items to put in the Pembroke Time Capsule.
I am sure that these events will be well attended by many proud Pembroke residents willing to share stories relating to the rich history of the town.
